Six Feet Under – “Hot Foxy Woman”
Great tune from this Texas Powerhouse Big Band!

Talk about a blast from the past!: “Marionette”
Now don’t fall on the floor laughing your head off when you hear this!
“Marionette” French expression meaning: “Pretty girl”. Disco! 1985 ( I know, you were not even born then!). Polydor Records (Paris France)
I have always loved to write songs and this was one I sent in as a demo to this label, hoping maybe one of their great soloists would consider recording it. Long story short, the company liked the demo as it was (with me that is) and decided to release it, as it was, with my vocals. The verses are in english and the refrain, en français bien sur!
The lyrics are “clean” and just talking about a girl I saw one day, on the famed street in Paris, Le Champs Elysées. And how she blew my mind and my life was never the same after having met her! I have always sung gospel at that point for almost 20 years, (not that I am against secular music), but I really did not want to be known as a “secular” artist in France, seeing that I lived and worked in there as a missionary.
However Polydor convinced me anyway to let them release it and said at least I would not only make money as the artist, but likewise as the composer. That year, it because a number one “maxi-single” in all of France. (Go figure!). Now if people would only buy Gospel like they do secular music!
Then they wanted me to go on tour to promote it, with dancing girls and all of that…no comment! But it is really funny to listen to music that was recorded in 1985. When I think I have been recording since 1965… man! Too much stuff here in my collection of Master recordings to listen too, so I thought I would bore you with some of it!
Hope it brings a smile to your face! It does mine.
